About Us

Founded in 2008 as a direct response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the enormous toll its effect had on the children and youth of the Greater New Orleans area and beyond, we sprang into action.

Our Philosophy and Approach: 

The mission of Excite All Stars Program is to provide an enriching experience for youth, ages 6-18, while enabling them to maximize their individual potential to transform into dynamic leaders- capable of making a positive difference in the world.


We have served over 2200 families since our inception and received the community impact award in 2015 from Zurich Insurance and also a community impact award from Nike in 2016 and 2017 for our efforts in youth development. We operate proven summer and out of school time enrichment programming.

Our programs include comprehensive multifaceted curriculum to address the “whole child”. We combine academics, the arts, athletics, nutrition and good stewardship programming under the umbrella, Excite! All Stars.
